Not nearly as good as the original, thanks to some toning down by Oliver Stone. This should never have been PG-13, because it really takes the edge off of it. I wanted to see the real, heartless approach taken on Wall Street in all its glory. Gordon Gecko is back, but he doesn't quite have the same bite.

Editors Note
Note Ambitious young investment banker Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) discovers that greed is still the name of the game when he forges a fragile alliance with onetime Wall Street hotshot Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) shortly after Gekko is released from prison. Having served eight years for securities fraud, money laundering, and racketeering, Gekko emerges from prison to find that his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), prefers to remain estranged, and that his former Wall Street cohorts are still raking in the cash. Flash-forward to 2008, and Winnie is dating a proprietary trader named Jake Moore (LaBeouf), who expresses a passion for green energy while working for his mentor Louis Zabel (Frank Langella), of Keller Zabel Investments. Despite heading up one of the most prominent investment firms in the country, Louis Zabel is forced to personally fight for the future of Keller Zabel before the Federal Reserve after the company's stock takes a hit due to persistent rumors that it's being dragged down by debt. Denied a bailout from the government, Keller Zabel soon falls victim to a hostile takeover lead by powerful investment bank partner Bretton James (Josh Brolin), of Churchill Schwartz. His job on the line and his mentor out of the picture, Jake discovers that Gordon Gekko is out promoting his new book "Is Greed Good?" and decides to attend a lecture being given by the author at Fordham University. According to Gekko, greed is now sanctioned by the government, and the U.S. economy is on the verge of collapse as a direct result of leveraged debt and wild conjecture. When Jake goes behind Winnie's back to try and repair her relationship with her father, Gekko reveals his compelling theories on the likely reasons for Zabel's downfall. Later, as Jake begins plotting to avenge his mentor, Gekko starts to reveal his true colors.
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "Brilliantly cast, WALL STREET 2 is a crackerjack powerhouse of a movie that shines a light on the financial machinations described by Warren Buffet as 'an economic Pearl Harbor.' Douglas is once again superb..." 05/14/2010
Entertainment Weekly "Oliver Stone's sequel to WALL STREET conjures the same darkly exciting atmosphere....It's vibrantly acted and entertainingly overstuffed." 05/28/2010
Wall Street Journal "Mr. Douglas sustains a sense of nasty fun as the former snake with the lizardly name..." 09/23/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a smart, glossy, beautifully photographed film that knows its way around the Street." 09/22/2010
USA Today "Douglas reprises his role with such relish it's hard to resist....There are plenty of strong performances, and LaBeouf does a nice job of becoming the tough-skinned pragmatist." 09/24/2010
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "Michael Douglas makes a triumphant return to form as one of American cinema's great villains in WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS..." 09/24/2010
Rolling Stone "Gordon Gekko is back, baby, and Michael Douglas plays the hell out of him." 09/24/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Like its predecessor, WALL STREET 2 is a moral fable about an impressionable youth torn between good and bad angels." 09/27/2010
Sight and Sound "Stone portrays the financial meltdown of 2008 in bravura fashion, depicting the downfall of fictional investment bank Keller Zabel with a sweep and dynamism that few other contemporary US directors can match." 11/01/2010
Uncut "The return of Gordon Gekko couldn't be better timed....There are good performances..." 10/11/2010

Review Oliver Stone's terrific movie brings back Gordon Gekko just in time for the 2008 recession... The biggest difference between the first "Wall Street" and this whip-smart film isn't Gekko's evolution to human being -it's the sense of dread Stone adds. Here, greed is a constant high, and everyone is chasing the dragon... Among an excellent cast, Douglas truly is the nexus; he and Stone make this sequel pay off big-time

Review ...Moving as fast and recklessly as a trillion-dollar fat-finger stock-market transaction, the film has the drive, luxe and sarcastic wit of the snazziest Hollywood movies for most of its two-hours-plus running time...
